a sunshine filled weekend

 happy monday peaches! hope you all had a wonderful weekend. tom and i shared a great day together <3

the weather friday was crazy, it felt like summer, i wore shorts....crazy. we headed to the lake near our house and brought along some sandwiches and our baseball gloves.
we sat and listened to the radio for a while and soaked up some vitamin d. this radio is super awesome and i love the little retro look of it. it has a solar panel on the top so it doesn't need batteries and you just turn the crank once and it powers the little radio, cool right? i bought it for tom this last christmas and we can't wait to use it more. perfect for camping and of course picnics like this one :)
we brought along our baseball gloves and threw the ball around a bit. it is one of our favorite things to do while being lazy at the park. it was such a perfect day for it, no body was around so we had the entire place to ourselves.
tom brought his skate board and did a little skating about, im not a fan of skate boarding but it was fun to see him skate again.
on the way home, tom took me on a secret way home and he finally showed me the cactus garden he had been meaning to show me so long ago. it was pretty awesome and i am a bit jealous of their awesome set up. one day i vow to have a cactus garden like this and have dinosaurs scattered throughout the garden.
i had never been to this part of town so i made tom pull over so we could take a look at the view. it was really beautiful.

since tom works at trader joes, they are offering all their workers FREE gym membership until septemeber, so tom and i went to 24 hour fitness signed up and did laps in the pool and then used the steam room, it was really awesome and we are both super stoked to be able to swim! it was the perfect end to a really really great day.

  2. love your colorful earrings! and LOVE that radio! solar-powered? Whoa! how awesome! And as usual, love the adventures you and Tom go on :) Seemed so relaxing and fun-- shorts! Over here (in Chicago) its around 60degrees and said to be 70 degrees twoard teh end of the week... sorta awesome to shed some layers of clothing BUT feel like we totally got jipped of winter... and well global warming makes me sad. On a happier note: The cactus garden is pretty awesome, I hope you do have one and PLEASE DO scatter dinosaurs all around it!I mean, who need a guard dog or burglar system? Just a cactus garden under windows and dinosaurs would do the trick :)

    xoxo.

    1. thanks des! the earrings used be old shoe clips! a fantastic idea, no? i bought them at a shop that is now closed so i have no idea who the designer is, otherwise i would share with the world because her other designs were really cool too! 60's isn't bad at all, that is really nice and 70's wow! yea global warming sucks but if we all do our part to help hopefully we can get it back on a better track.

      i know my idea of cactus garden is so amazing! tom and i discussed it last night and it was pretty much the same idea...one day this will come true!

  5. I'm sure you already know I am jealous of your weather. Its actually kinda warm today but definitely not shorts weather. Looks like you two had a lovely day. I love the close up shot of you lying on the blanket. Your wedding ring is gorgeous.

  6. I love that you guys go on little day trips when you have time off. It's adorable! The lake looks like a fun place...kind of surprised that no one else was around on such a nice day!

    Also that's awesome that you guys get a free membership for a while! Now we can be virtual swimming buddies :) haha

  12. Ah that looks so so lovely! It looks like in the middle of summer! Here it has been sunny but it's still freezing, could definitely not wear shorts :)
    That cactus garden is very cool, I love cactuses cause they require minimal looking after, I'm terrible with plants so they suit me! :)

  14. Beautiful weather - also a cactus garden with dinosaurs? Hell yes!! It's awesome Tom's work gives their employees free gym memberships. My work has a reduced rate for one of the gyms in town, but its one of the most expensive ones too - so I just sick to my wee gym instead:)
